The bust happened at the World Trade Bridge, when CBP officers became suspicious of a refrigerated tractor trailer trying to cross.
Officers referred the trailer to secondary inspection, where a K-9 search and physical inspection led to the discovery of 276 packages, which contained just under 1,000 pounds of marijuana.
The estimated street value of the drugs is around $195,000.
